TOGA place mat Headboard on the Budget

Materials: TOGA place mats (7), small nails (42), hammer (1)

Description: Use 4 TOGA place mats vertically and nail them to the wall about ¾ above the top of your mattress.

Use small enough nails that will fit in the holes for the threads.

Use 3 more TOGA place mats horizontally on the top of the four mats that are already nailed to the wall. Again use small nails and nail them to the wall.

If you have any small pictures frames you can hang them on the mats or just leave the mats as they are.

Total cost: $1.99 x 7 = 13.99 + tax

    You can try it with some of the no-damage hangers (like 3M Command) if you want to avoid all the nail holes in your wall. It also makes it easier to change/clean the mats.
